photo gallery



8:48 pm on Apr 9, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi looking for a way to get a photo gallery to read a directory of image files and display them but without having to enter the name of each file as this is a gallery that will change on a regular basis .

I have looked around but am coming up dry

You'll probably need some sort of server side programming to read the directory - PHP, Perl, ASP . . . you might look for "PHP static gallery" or something like that.

You won't likely be able to do it with Javascript as there are security limitations on what Javascript can do - reading the file system is among them.

Alternatively (JavaScript)
You may list the files in the hidden iframe (href="image folder name") then get the innerhtml from iframe and manipulate by javascript.

right then well problem solved very easily in the long run

code: for f in stagepics/*jpg ; do echo "<a class=\"thumbnail\" href=\"#thumb\"><img
src=\"$f\" width=\"100px\" height=\"75px\" border=\"0\"><span><img
src=\"$f\"></span></a>" ; done > pics.html

works a treat in Linux i have no doubt it can be modded for use under wnders
HTH someone

Search 'Automatically Generate a Photo Gallery from a Directory of Images' and you will have plenty of choices.

i had found a few but for one reason or another they did not seem right (personal likes and dislikes i suppose) one hing i will say about the script if like me you like your cose to look tidy then it all needs to be on one line
